LOW ByronPosted: August 5th, 2015
Byron Y Low, age 84, left this earth on July 25th, 2015 to return to his heavenly home. His devotion to his family here on earth and his quiet spiritual strength were evident throughout his life and sustained him to the end.
Byron will be deeply missed by his wife of 60 years, LaPriel Butler and his four children, Shelly (Dennis) Hill, Todd (Robbie) Low, Shannon Low, and Desiree (Jeremy) Harris. His 12 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren will miss arm wrestling and playing games with him. He is also survived by his devoted sister, Mildred Jensen.
Byron was born in Cardston, Alberta to Brigham Young Low and Hannah Antris Gedlaman. He was the youngest of 6 children, and will be happy to meet up with 4 of his siblings, Mary, Ross, Doug and Laura who have gone ahead.
Byron graduated from Utah State University in 1960 with a degree in Engineering and could build or fix anything put before him. After 20 years working for Hewlett Packard in the U.S., Byron and LaPriel returned to Lethbridge to start his own business, Hi-Lo Machine and Tool, and to be closer to family. He built a wonderful home in West Lethbridge and they stayed there the remainder of their time, until moving to Claresholm very recently so they could be closer to their daughter, Shelly.
Byron was a hard worker, patient with all and very faithful in his responsibilities within the LDS church. He was generous, happy and loved family times together. He was always the first to offer to help anyone who was in need. He made a difference in the lives of many and will be remembered for his legacy of love, patience and humility.
